A Doctor Who RPG Stream

Thanks to the announcement of new shows from Geek & Sundry at Gen Con, I discovered that their Star Trek Adventures series Shield Of Tomorrow has finished... and the GM mentioned a previous Doctor Who RPG game. So something to look through the backlog of!

The Time Traveller's Wife, the series

The Time Traveller’s Wife to be adapted for HBO by Steven Moffat. In the interview he acknowledges having been influenced by it before.

(And will the title role get as weirdly typecast by it as Rachel McAdams?)

Is that...?

Jodie Whittaker sneaking on stage to model the Doctor’s outfit in the Comic-Con fashion show for the official replica clothing line from Her Universe was delightful.

The universe is calling

Now that the teaser trailer has aired on BBC One, here it is.

And in showing the Doctor making little changes in her future companions’ lives in a flash, it makes the Doctor look like an artron-energy-powered speedster. Which I presume is just artistic licence... though with this show, you never can tell! :)

The Thirteenth Doctor toys

Various sites have photos of a variety of inevitable stylised pop culture ornaments, a costume from Her Universe, and a 12” scale figure from Character Options. No sign of anything for their classic 5” scale line, or their Star Wars style 3.75” scale.

Apparently we’re also getting Bill in 5” scale this summer, among various new and variant figures for it. In the UK they’re exclusive to B&M. So I have to find one of those, I guess.

Karl Marx

Today marks the 200th birthday of Karl Marx, whose ideas (and the misinterpretation of his ideas) had a huge effect on history starting around a century later.

Georges Méliès

Sometimes Google go all in with their Doodles. To celebrate George Méliès they produced a cartoon that can be viewed in VR as well as showing the 360 view in Youtube and I don’t even know how that works.
